TUSTING is a family firm based in the heart of the English countryside, with its roots deep in the English leather and shoe trade. The fifth generation of the family is now at the helm, following a long line of Tustings who have been tanning, grading and trading the world’s finest leathers for over 130 years. Our current workshop lies close to the original tannery founded in 1875 by our great, great, grandfather and is home to our new generation of highly skilled craftsmen. It is perfectly placed to draw on the considerable talents of local leatherworkers, many of whose families also share in this heritage.
This deep and expert knowledge is the secret ingredient that guarantees the selection of the perfect leather for each exquisite piece made in our workshop. In the hands of our talented team of Craftsmen and Women these flawless materials become wonderful products, which combine truly original character with unmistakable quality. Indeed, it is the products themselves that communicate their own value and quality. More than fifteen years after the first briefcases were produced, many are still in everyday use. They look wonderful, having matured beautifully and acquired the mellow patina and distinctive personality of a classic piece of furniture.
